    hi i have a 2007 extra cab tacoma 4wd off road and decide to grease my drive shaft and i only found 3 grease zerks 1 in the front 1 in the middle and 3rd at the end of the drive shaft and each zerk is located on all three yolks

    i have the chilton repair manual and the pic on where to grease the drive shaft doesn't even look like the one on my truck

    so my question is there any other spots on the drive shaft other than the 3 i just did or anywere else on the truck that has too be greased?

    First month of ownership... This month I'm removing front air dam, and also Rhino lining the bed.
    2WD has sealed with zero zerks - no need to grease your shaft

    Prerunner has three zerk points

    4WD has five. Total of 5 should be the same for all the 4x4 models, regardless of cab size. On the rear there are three and they are on the outside of the u-joints. On the front there are two and they are inside the u-joints. Easy to locate as you can rotate your shaft. The bitch to reach is the rear zerk on the front prop shaft. It requires the removal of the heat shield to get to the zerk fitting.

    Hope that helps.
